    Mummytogirls - taking the scenic route 29th Jan 18 at 8:49 PM
    Evening Diary,

    Well there seems to be so many diaries being deleted at the moment I have decided to start a new one to try and preserve my history on here.

    My first diary can be found here:

    So I started in March 2010 and it hasn't always been an easy route but weve managed to pay off quite a bit of our debt and we stand at 6069.37 today. We probably could have paid the debt off my now but we are enjoying our life (taking the scenic route) with our two girls (now aged 11 and 9). They are growing up too fast before my eyes, wish time would slow down a bit.

    So feel free to join my ramblings... usually about my MSE ways, what I eat and the all important pegging out in the summer .

    Afternoon Diary,

    Really struggling to manage to get on here at the moment! Hopefully things have calmed down a bit now and I can get on more.

    I am totally not in control of things at the moment, not in terms of spending thats not been out of control or anything. Its just I have no idea of NSD's and haven't done any surveys or anything.

    We had a brilliant weekend last weekend and we were just really not in the house. I have only just managed to get back on top of my ironing after all the pegging out!!

    Other than not being fully in control, things are good here .

    Hope all ok xx
